Every now and then we review comments, emails, and other communications from OROGs and others. It helps keep the lid screwed on. This time we ran across the letter of a left-handed, right-brained Ph.D. who is one of the "reasonable" people. This individual was involved with the Old Gringo and with his family back in the days when he was a juvenile deliquent in training, mixed with a bit of a know-it-all preppy and all around "cool guy" (read: arrogant, self-centered, spoiled, conceited narcissist). The Old Gringo was...after all...the only "cool guy" in McAllen with a new Kharmann Ghia Volkswagen, and even Playboy Magazine declared that automobile to be the quintessential "Cool Guy" ride.
In any regard, the comments sent by this individual, who is a tenured professor at Texas's premier public university....the one in College Station - Bryan.....confided some opinions about my political orientation. The same individual also revealed (confessed) "extreme moderate" views guided that contributor's political leanings. My response (once again...everything is about the Old Gringo still) was telling and worth sharing with other OROGs so that you all will know how I try to divy-up the servings on this blog. We try to keep it interesting and pointed without over-dosing on Lite-mayonaise and low cholesterol rice-cakes. We recognize that many folks....some of our "followers"....review this screed to gain a bit of insight into a slightly pro-Mexican rightwing vintage. So, the entry below is an only slightly redacted response to the OROG from the prestigious University.
